  8:00PM 10:30PM Theater in the Park- The Crucible   This is a 1952 play by the American playwright Arthur Miller. When theatre is at its finest, it sheds light on the human condition, showing audiences both the very best and the very worst of what it means to be human. Arthur Miller's The Crucible gives us the broadest spectrum of this; the play is practically a naked bulb in a darkened room, baring ugliness and deprivation alongside the rare beauty of true faith and forgiveness. It speaks to two deplorable events at two different time periods in our American history: the Salem, Massachusetts witch trials of 1692, which is the setting of the play; and the communist McCarthy trials of the early 1950s, during which the play was written and of which the play serves as an allegory. But fundamentally, the characters and the emotional content of the play speak to any time period and any circumstance in which motivations are difficult to understand and in which it is wrongly perceived that *any* answer is better than *no* answer. All performances: $13 Adult, $11 Seniors, $8 Children (under 12). For reservations and to order, call 217-632-5440 or 1-800-710-9290. Box Office Hours : Monday through Saturday: 12:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. Sundays: 2:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. http://www.theatreinthepark.net/index.html
